- behaving calmly around other dogs,

- working around distractions,

Skills initiated in Good Manners I are extended with greater distractions


Successful completion of Good Manners Level I or equivalent obedience class.   Dogs should have foundation skills started such as sit, down, sit/stay , walking politely and recall in a mildly distracting environment like our classroom.

Dogs should be people and dog-safe and fully vaccinated.



This is an great step for a well-behaved dog out in public.  This class would be helpful in preparation for the Canadian Kennel Club "Canine Good Neighbour" or in preparation for evaluation as a therapy dog with organizations like Therapeutic Paws of Canada, Ottawa Therapy Dogs or the Ottawa Humane Society's Brightening lives program..
